Picture of My Wine Rack
Good news everyone,

Remember my friend, the one who ask me to build her a shoe rack:
http://www.instructables.com/id/My-Vertical-Shoe-Rack/

Well, she was complaining about not having a proper space to keep her wine so she ask me if I could help. After some consideration we both agreed that the space under her dining table was a good place to keep her wine.


Thank you for looking and I hope you guys enjoy, and don't forget to rate it :) !!!

Well, I couldn't simpler, I'm using:
  • a bunch of 2"X1" I'm using maple but you can use pretty much anything;
  • #6 2" wood screw;
  • 2.5 corrigated glued roof support (I explain later);
  • wood glue.
For tools I used:
  • power drill;
  • 1/4" drill bit;
  • 3/32"drill bit;
  • Phillips bit.

Step 2: Design

I'm no woodworker, I'm really curious and not afraid to try and make mistakes. This project its pretty simple: 3 shelves supported by 4 uprights with some cushion for the bottles. 

Another thing I would like to learn is how to draw properly. LOL

I had for useful space under the table a "cube" measuring 15"H X 16"W X 14"D ,
so I end up building the rack with 14"H X 161/2"W X 7"D

Step 3: Let's Make some cuts !!!

I had a very specific need regarding height and width, you can adapt the measures according to your need. The case and the rails should remain the same.

We are going to need the following:
  • 4X 14" from the 2" x 1" (its really 11/5" x 3/4");
  • 6X 15" from the 2"X 1";
  • 6X 4" from the 2"X 1";

Step 4: Assembling the shelves

We are going to make three (3) three shelves using, for each one, 15" (2X) and 4"(2X). Place like th epictures, apply glue on the sides and hold it tight with the clamps. Once is dry we can put some screws just to make sure things will be in place.

Thank you very much.

I still working on it. I will post more pictures later.

I got some wood filling to cover the holes and I am testing some stains to match the table's color.
awesome
